i'll write their previous names, and new names, here.

please tell me if i missed some.

forest muckroot ---> hexalant

rock granulator ---> amalgamator

rock crusher ---> beefstack

digging ---> excavation

cooking ---> cuisine

farming ---> agriculture

operating ---> machinery

kindness ---> medicine

active signal ---> green signal

standby ---> red signal

Unamalgamator is playful and accurate, but I'd take deamalgamator as a compromise.

The rest are on point. It makes sense to polish before release now that features are decided. Green/red lets you be very clear when instructing. (It's how I wrote a memory toggle tutorial several months ago.) Beefsteak is appropriately silly.

Asking it the other way, what other things should be name changed to be more playful/immersive?

Hexalant sounds industry-like.

Amalgamator? Did Klei hired Dr. Doofenshmirtz?

Green / red should be on/off or activated/deactivated. This sounds like upper management said "you know we should make this more layman friendly, why don't we associate colors to binary states so its easier?"

Soo... is there a funcionallity change comming to the amalgamator? Are we going to get new recipies for it? Name changes before were focused on removing confusion (algae deoxydizer -> algae diffuser; Storage compactor -> storage bin) even the name change of the lead scientist in the lore was meant to avoid confusion. I just can`t fit this change into it. (unless it means a funcionallity change is comming).

Looking at mechanic in this game instead of on/off should be 0/1 ;)
